The Velveteen Rabbit
Children on Stage, Garland, Texas
This play took place in a bedroom. Bedrooms can be boring without any other changes. So I decided to paint the pictures from the well known children's book. I ended up with four giant over sized paintings depicting the time when the boy gets the rabbit all the when when the rabbit turns real. The toy cupboard had to be magical so I designed the cupboard with scrim walls. When lit from the front it looked like a painted wall with the images from the book. When counter lit you could see the toys talk to one anther behind the wall.
